DESIGN
Olympic Medals Exhibit Modern Design
The Torino 2006 Winter Olympics medals exhibit an elegant, modern design. The round medal has a hole in its center, through which the ribbon is looped. The elegant simplicity of its engineering does not require sewing. Its design reflects pure geometry and ribbon topology. The front of the medal includes the symbol of the games and the back features pictograms of the specific sports discipline in which the ribbon was won. Its relief surface has carefully been textured with shiny and satiny areas.
